The chapel is closed for restoration until work is completed in the fall. The churchyard will remain open. St. Paul's Chapel is part of Trinity Wall Street, an Episcopal parish that has been a part of New York City since 1697. The parish is deeply rooted in the city’s and the nation’s history. Established during the British occupation of New York and recognized by royal charter, Trinity was the first Anglican Church (which followed the services of the Church of England and included the King or Queen in its prayers) in Manhattan. St. Paul's Chapel was founded in 1766 as a chapel-of-ease at Broadway and Fulton Street. George Washington prayed there after his inauguration as President in 1789. Located just across the street from the World Trade Center, St. Paul’s played an important role in hosting recovery workers after the attacks of September 11, 2001.

It's a nice old church that has survived quite a bit, including 9/11. On the inside, you can read about the church's and NYC's history and see pictures on a nice display created along the walls.

A charming church with plaques in the graveyard showing and telling the history of the place. A resting place for the Emergency crew during the horrors of 9/11.

St Paul’s Chapel is across from 9/11 Memorial. Priests and volunteers offered the church to first responders as a place to rest, eat and reflect. Lovely church with very old graveyard.

At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial
District is where New York City began as a center of
commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful
setting are complemented by museums, countless
skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District,
home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange.
